Wedding Beauty Timeline

Wedding Beauty Timeline

When it comes to wedding planning, choosing a date and announcing your engagement is the least of your concern. When the venue is sorted, the photographer is booked, and invitations are sent, it's time to take a step back and begin the wedding pampering. 

After all, looking your best and picture-perfect on your wedding day will take some effort and months of planning. To help you avoid last-minute beauty disasters, we've put together the ultimate wedding beauty timeline for every bride. When the big day arrives, Jeanne's Hair & Makeup Studio will ensure you are a glowing, blushing, and beautiful bride.


Wedding Beauty Timeline for Brides

Eight Months

Experiment with a New Hair Color: Are you planning for a major hair color change for your wedding? At eight months, it’s the best time to try out new hair colors. If you don't like the new look, you can still grow it out or change the color without frying your hair.

Start Your Skincare Routine: If you haven't been following your skincare routine, now is the time to start again. You should cleanse, tone, target, and moisturize every morning and night. For better results, exfoliate twice or three times a week.

Fitness and Nutrition Plan: Start a nutrition and fitness plan to avoid crash dieting before your wedding day. Instead of feeling exhausted and weak, you'll walk down the aisle looking healthy and glowing. 

Three Months

Trials of Hair and Makeup: Experiment with different hair and makeup styles, as well as different artists. Then, once you've decided, book them right away; you don't want to risk clashing schedules or last-minute changes.

Tanning: If you want a bronzy glow on your wedding day, you need to decide how you want to achieve it. If you're going to get a spray tan, do it a couple of months before your wedding. If you prefer to use a gradual tanning moisturizer, begin incorporating it into your daily skincare routine.

Teeth Whitening: Most professional teeth whitening sessions require multiple appointments. Make your first appointment a couple of months before and after your last session; use an at-home whitening kit to maintain your pearly whites.

Two Weeks

Hair Treatment, Trim, and Color: Get a color-enhancing gloss treatment at your salon for shiny hair on your wedding day, and trim any split ends. Suppose you want a subtle color change; two weeks before your big day is a perfect time.

Exfoliate Skin: If you haven't already, begin exfoliating your skin at least twice a week. Try a gentle body scrub to remove dead skin cells without drying out your skin. If you have sensitive skin, avoid physical exfoliators in favor of chemical exfoliants such as salicylic acid or glycolic acid.

Get Your Brows Done: Get your brows waxed, threaded, or shaped two weeks before your wedding, and tweeze any stray hairs at least one day before to avoid bumps and redness.

HYDRATE!! Leading up to your special day, drink plenty of water to keep yourself and your skin hydrated. 


Gentle Facial: A week before your wedding, schedule a soothing, hydrating facial. You don't want your skin to react negatively to any exfoliation or treatments. If you have sensitive skin or have never had a facial before, you should avoid this one because it will be difficult to predict how your skin will react to new products.

Root Coverage: ​​If you've dyed your hair and need your roots touched up, wait a week before dying your hair, so your roots don't grow out before your big day. However, don't wait any longer than necessary to allow enough time to correct your hair if something goes wrong.

HYDRATE!! Again, leading up to your special day, drink plenty of water to keep yourself and your skin hydrated. 

Two Days

Get Manicure/Pedicure: Use gel polish to prevent chips and cracks on your wedding day. You've probably decided on your nail tech and color before the manicure, so relax with your bridesmaids and enjoy the process. 

HYDRATE!! We can’t say this enough! Leading up to your special day, drink plenty of water to keep yourself and your skin hydrated.
